You’ve been using my software, reading my blog, watching my videos…

I‘ve been helping entrepreneurs and business owners for more than 37 years — mostly from within our Business Power Tools software apps and templates, and thru my blogs and book Business Black Belt, but now I’m making myself available to you.

My gift is for connecting the dots in unusual ways…
whether it’s business strategy or your thinking, let’s figure it out.

I can quickly get to the root of the issue and point out some alternatives that may work well for you. So if there’s something you need to deal with (a customer, employee, financial situation, management issue, or yourself) and there’s no one else you can talk to about it… Contact me.

“I truly enjoyed listening to you and admire your simple, yet brilliant, perspective on things. You have a natural ability to break through complexities and make things seem simple.”
~ Sonya W.

When you’re ready to hire me to help you,
we’ll keep it simple and easy to try on for size.

I charge $250/hour, but I’ll give you 30-minutes free to see if I can help:

  • We can talk about your business
  • Answer questions and give feedback on your business plan
  • Strategize about funding and investors
  • Give you feedback on your investor presentation — Things investors may not tell you
  • Review your financial model — a reality check before pitching it is a good idea!
  • Support your financing strategy and help prep you to talk with investors
  • Talk about your marketing strategy
  • Talk you off the ledge if you’re having a bad day or a catastrophic business issue
  • Or any place you feel stuck — like you just can’t get there from here…

We can cover a lot of ground in a half hour!

I can coach you myself and/or I can refer you to one of our many coaches or consultants who are better suited to handle a specific issue or project.

If you want to continue working together, we can make a new deal.
We can also create blocks of time and/or schedule regular weekly or monthly meetings.

I prefer Skype (burke.franklin), but phone is good too.
